Management of body hair is a distressing task. One can easily get sick of traditional methods of removing it temporarily and rather opt for a permanent way out. A hair-free and smooth skin is desired by all. People often opt for quicker methods of hair removal like shaving and waxing, but these are just temporary solutions. These methods are usually painful, messy and leave one with ingrown hair which can be painful. Therefore, Laser Hair Reduction, in comparison, is a more effective method to do away with unwanted body hair for both men and women. For best laser hair reduction treatment in Gurgaon one must ensure that they only consult a certified dermatologist. It is a gentle technique that treats larger areas efficiently with minimal discomfort and absolutely no downtime.

How is Laser Hair Removal procedure performed?

Regardless of the area or site that needs to de-fuzz, laser hair reduction treatment can be of great help. The procedure allows the hair follicles to be completely destroyed in just a matter of minutes with minimal discomfort. The treatment comprises of highly concentrated laser light which; when shot on targeted hair follicles are burnt and damaged. The laser's energy emitted is then attracted by the pigment of the hair and thereby reducing the hair. 

Before initiating laser hair reduction, the to-be-treated area will be trimmed. A cooling gel will be applied to the target area facilitating laser light to penetrate deeper into the skin. After careful examination, laser beams will be adjusted according to the skin color, hair color, the thickness of the hair, and location of the hair that is to be removed. Then, low-level light beams are shot at the targeted area, burning the hair and hampering further growth. When the procedure is completed, cold compressors, cold water or anti-inflammatory creams or lotions will be applied to soothe the treated areas and reduce any discomfort.
